WASHINGTON — Foreign powers are pulling back from their dealings with the US government since hundreds of classified diplomatic cables wound up on the Internet, US State and Defense department officials said Tuesday.

Spokesmen for the Pentagon and State Department declined to provide detailed evidence that US foreign relations had been harmed by the massive leak, including what countries might be limiting their contact.

Both cited recent exchanges with foreign officials that suggested some had suddenly grown reluctant to trust the US with their secrets.

"We have already seen some indications of meetings that used to involve several diplomats and now involve fewer diplomats," said State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley.

"We're conscious of at least one meeting where it was requested that notebooks be left outside the room," Crowley told reporters.
